Researchers have engineered biohybrid nerve tissue containing both living cells and non-living components to develop 3D models of neural networks, an advance that may lead to better understanding of how the brain works.
The produced tissue is similar to a computer processing unit, which provided the basic principle to today's supercomputers.
Using a 3D model of these networks outside the body may offer researchers a new tool to understand how these connections work.
Most of Assam's Brahmaputra Valley has erupted in spontaneous protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill.
Students, activists, writers, actors, musicians and people from all walks of life thronged the streets to voice their angst against the bill, which they believe will pose a serious threat to not only their livelihood and political destiny but also to cultural and linguistic identity.
The new amendment to the Citizenship Act of 1955 aims to provide Indian citizenship to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian refugees from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
